__I'm very new to Windows 7. I'm trying to get something like the old Outlook Express so I can just put it on my desktop and go. When I scan some thing I want to be able to send it to email and send. I don't have a default email is what my Kodak 3200 AIO tells me. Windows Live won't work because of some sort of port problem. Right now I use I.E. 8 and favorites to get to my windstream.net.

P/S Windows 7 Home Premium :thumbsup:

It appears that they have done away with Outlook Express in Windows 7....

I know that Hotmail is no longer supported by Outlook Express which is what i assume you are trying to to like it to. It may be easier to just attach the file using the attach utility in Hotmail, will take a few minutes longer.

You could try a different email client such as Thunderbird, Pegasus, or Eudora.

Thanks Queen-Evie for you reply. I'm not sure which one will work the best.

THANKS for your help. I have chose to use Thunderbird and it seem to be working correctly. I'm still trying to get it to work a little more like O.E. I'm trying to get to open the in box only not a split screen.
